This one was a little tricky, not completley sure about it especially 
"some kids are going off - we're fingering the punch bowl" part but I hope you enjoy it anyway.


Intro:
C Em-E-Am  
G F-Fm
C Am G C 

G

C                        Em - E - Am
When I left I wasn't thinking
        G                F - Fm
That I wasn't coming home
     C
But first Al Green
          Am      
And then Barry White
   G                C 
Convinced me not to go

G

C                           Em - E - Am
And I didn't come home for fighting
           G                F - Fm
I came to bandage up my hand
    C                                   Am
And if you're gonna talk to me like that
     G                          C
Then I'll just go back out again

G

Dm                             Am
Wipe that chip right off your shoulder
F                     C - A  
We ain't getting any younger
Dm                        Am
Some things are getting bigger
F                        Fm
Some things are falling off
       C                       Am
Some things they seem much harder
       G                C
Some other things stay soft

G

C                          Em - E - Am       
We're tipping over in the taprooms
               G                 F - Fm
We're shooting through the ceiling
      C
We're dying in the bathrooms
           Am             G                   C
And we're living for that one sweet, fleeting feeling

G

C                      Em - E - Am
I know my cough sounds awful
                G                 F - Fm            
Some nights it hurts a bit to breathe
         C
But I'm glad it's just my body
Am       G               C
I do my business on the street

G

Dm                      Am
We ain't getting any younger
F                                   Am - A 
Tomorrow night we'll be that much older
F                      Fm
Some kids are growing awkward
C  (Here I'm not sure)    Am
And some kids are going off
    G
We're fingering the punch bowl
                      C
We're feeding from the trough

Em-E-Am
G F-Fm

C                                      Am
There's nothing quite like a Cheyenne sunrise
            G                 C
To make us has-beens feel too old

G

Dm                  Am
Onward Christian soldiers
F                                      C - A
We're gonna bash right through your borders
Dm                           Am
I bet your next party gets sketchy
F                           Fm
I saw the new kids nodding off

G

C                             Am
Some things are getting bigger
      G                 C
Some things are falling off
C                           Am
Some things seem much harder
      G                    Am
Some other things stay soft
